Tamarac 76 Hoosic Valley 69
Leading Scorers: Bengals – Joey Poulin 34 Mikey D’Agostino 15 James Blake II 13 Valley – Isaiah Eckler 24 Chris Jones 10
Key Stat: Tamarac started with a 29-15 first period.
Take Away: The much-anticipated matchup didn’t disappoint. The Bengals started the game with a 9-0 run and ended the first frame leading 29-15. The Valley slowly cut into the deficit trimming the margin to 39-31 at the break.
The Indians took their first and only lead of the game with 0:07 remaining in the third on an Issac Wiley bucket, but Mikey D’Agostino answered at the buzzer for Tamarac and the Bengals took the slim 53-52 lead into the fourth.
Joey Poulin started the final eight minutes with eight unanswered on two free throws, a bucket and one, and a wing triple. But after a timeout the Valley responded on a Chris Jones deuce off a Tyler Eddy find, and a pair of free throws from Isaiah Eckler cutting the Tamarac lead to five at 61-56. That would be as close as the Indians would get. Eckler scored 11 points down the stretch to keep the Valley within striking distance, but Tamarac answered, hitting 4 of 6 free throws late to seal the road victory.
With the win the Bengals go to 7-0, 9-2 while Hoosic Valley moves to 5-1, 9-1 on the year.
